June Hur, Queen of the Heo Clan @WriterJuneHurI never thought this day would come, and it still feels very unreal to me, but I'M GOING TO BE A PUBLISHED AUTHOR.
My book is a murder mystery set in Joseon Dynasty Korea, & also a coming-of-age tale about a girl searching for home. It'll be out in the world in 2020! 😭 pic.twitter.com/vQR0sRk8og
Oh I'll read the heck out of this one!
And it seems like a good time to remind #amquerying Twitter that high on my #MSWL for SFF/spec fic are stories set in Korea and/or that draw on Korean myth and history
Hi! I get this Q a lot, so--
@RossYoon is a nonfiction agency, but I'm expanding my list to include nonfiction + SFF.
Across both, I want to learn surprising things through compelling characters.
For specific examples, check #MSWL

N. K. Jemisin @nkjemisinEvery time I see another mediocre Europe-based fantasy, I think of how many brilliant non-European fantasies got rejected to make room for it.
Non-European fantasy is on my forever #MSWL.
Please send it to me so I can submit it to the host of editors who tell me regularly how hungry they are for different stories, fresh settings, and fresh points of view.
Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichenWould love a mythical take on PERFUME (Suskind) with paints instead of scents: historical/secondary world fantasy where True Ochre requires the hair of a just man who's never known bitterness, True White the tears of a serpent who's lost her love etc. Art, blood, hunts. #mswl
The cow as white as milk
The cape as red as blood
The hair as yellow as corn
The slipper as pure as gold
(Seconding this #MSWL)
Samantha Mash 🌾 @anamericanghostKhutulun was the great-great-granddaughter of Genghis Khan. She was a strong fighter and insisted that any man who wished to marry her must defeat her in wrestling, but any man who she beat would have to give her a horse. She wound up with 10,000 horses. twitter.com/xnulz/status/9…
Hi writers, I just got off the phone with an editor at a major SFF publisher who specifically mentioned seeing this on my #MSWL and demanded I send it to her if it ever came in.
If you've got it, flaunt it--right into my inbox.
Military Times @MilitaryTimesArmy researchers are developing a self-aware robot #squid you can 3D print in the field. Neat: bit.ly/2K38piC pic.twitter.com/3dLzelT5vu
Definitely #MSWL ...but this might be the first time I'm not sure whether it's on the list as SFF or nonfiction?
